[talking over each other] dagen: i am dagen mcdowell. connell: i am connell mcshane. dow 14,000 and we found out there were 157,000 new jobs created last month. just a small desk and twelve million people looking for work. we have guggenheim's scott minerd coming up on speeding up the recovery. dagen: the national debt and not a worry. not even in that country's biggest economic problem. that is a growing chorus in this country among so-called experts but are those stinkers not living in the u.s. but in fantasyland? connell: we will talk about that and immigration reform because it has been huge topics this week. if we told you you could save billions of dollars in foreign aid to corrupt governments with immigration reform would you take that trade? dagen: super bowl feeder and counterfeiters are honest. we bring you more on a record

$13.6 million bust in fake nfl merchandise. you got to give me a jersey, if you don't make one i will get one. connell: you will be all right. especially men wearing sports jerseys is one of my pet peeves. let's go to nicole petallides at the nyse-listed 14,000. nicole: don't come down here today because today on the floor of the nyse, support your favorite team. and the trader jackets a lot of traders are wearing their favorite jersey's. the dow four days out and we hit it, we are here, 14,000 right now, a gain of 140 points. dow leaders include bank of america and travelers and verizon and american express and at&t helping along the trend has been a good one, january, the best january in two decades. we kickoff 2013 in a very bullish fashion but a lot of
11:03 am
traders think the pullback is coming. dagen: thank you. again those jobs numbers this morning, labor department saying 157,000 jobs were created in january just shy of expectations. unemployment rate picking up unexpectedly to 7.9% but that was enough to push the dow over 14,000. scott minerd, chief invested -- chief investment officer at guggenheim manages under management, what the make of the job numbers? not bad but not great? >> there are a lot of positives in these numbers. i have been bullish on unemployment last few years. the big thing that i think everybody is ignoring it is when you look at private sector growth, we have been averaging around 200,000 jobs a month and all the drag on these numbers that keep pulling them down to
11:04 am
150 is really the result of the size of government shrinking and inadvertently i think the policymakers in washington are giving us what is good for the economy and that is a on a diet while the private sector continues to grow and when you compare us to the last expansion there were 150,000 private sector jobs added herman in the last expansion and in this expansion there are 200,000. believe it or not washington may be helping us. dagen: if times are so great, why is the ten year treasury below 2% on a yield? why hasn't the bond bear market showed up yet? which you were calling for last march? >> you are right. i got to tell you it has probably more to do with the craziness of central bankers than anything else?
11:05 am
i was just in davos last weekend we spent a lot of time talking about the monetary policy, what is going on, how unorthodox this all is. the thing that i said to mark carney of the head of the bank of england was waived lb into uncharted waters and acknowledging we don't know how to get home we decided to sell deeper into uncharted waters. we are setting ourselves up for major problems. the fact that the fed continues to keep interest rates this low especially when i can point to lots of rosy things in the economy will have some pretty bad long-term adverse effect. dagen: when you start blazing bets on long-term adverse effects? they star shorting treasurys at this point? what do you want -- what do you want to sell? >> at this stage, shorting
11:06 am
treasury last march, a pretty on fulfilling that. it hasn't hurt as much but has not been good. where do you want to go? gold is a place to store value. art which i have talked about in the past which is not accessible to everybody but it is to ultra high network people. stocks for the time being are great place to be especially in europe where there have been battered and the ecb is just getting started at the party that we have been offered the last three years. japanese stocks look very attractive. there are a lot of opportunities out there. i would stay away from treasury securities and allocate my money to risk assets and i think the party will go on for two or three more years before they realize they have to take the punch bowl away. dagen: and hang over last week for decades. 40-niners or ravens? >> who are you going to? dagen: ravens. you're going to take the other
11:07 am
side. >> you are more of an expert than i am on this. what does connell mcshane say? dagen: we never agree. [talking over each other] >> aren't the dodgers in this? dagen: you wish. thank you, scott minerd. >> take a look at the staggering numbers. the u.s. spending $30 million in foreign aid. my next guest has a very interesting idea. if we embrace immigration reform you can save billions by stopping that money from going to corrupt governments. vice president of research at singularity university joins us now to explain this. you are basically saying let's invest in the people. let the people come in from other countries and instead of sending money to the government have them send money to their families. >> look at what happens when they give money to corrupt
11:08 am
governments all over the world. they embrace themselves. they have individuals trickling down to the people but the u.s. never gets credit. they never hear about american money doing good for you. it makes it corrupt bureaucracy, bigger and bigger. on the other hand look at immigration. we get people coming in of rear, they worked extremely hard here, help us build the economy, help us make america strong brand more competitive and then they go back and send money to their families over there, look at this amazing country, freedom, democracy, free markets and look how much success i have achieved over here. don't you want to be like this? connell: it is called remands it you come to the united states and the total was $120 billion from immigrants sent back or migrant workers sent back to their families in their native countries so obviously that is a big round figure. we would still be as the government giving aid to foreign governments, wouldn't we? it would not necessarily solve
11:09 am
that problem. you just think we should change course. >> i would give disaster relief when rear earthquake in haiti if that is the way you want to do it and giving billions of dollars to these governments to buy military goods or to buy other stuff, this is ridiculous, it really does go to corrupt officials versus the people. it is the wrong way. when you bring people over here goes to the lowest levels and we create millions of ambassadors talking about american ideals. connell: an economic argument for immigration reform. maybe not the only one but make that argument to us because we haven't heard it as much this week as we should. immigration reform is an economic boost. should we say that? >> it could be if we did it right. i don't trust the government, our politicians not to screw something up over here. there is hope that we may get a sensible bill which gives the economy a huge boost because you
11:10 am
have millions of people not participating in the economy in a meaningful way, hoping to bring skilled immigrants and start creating jobs by starting companies. a lot of good can come from that if we don't screw it up but if we do that, the other side benefits by bringing in these great people, they send money abroad and now become american fans like we're doing it. connell: the money is coming from relatives here. good argument from your point of view. thanks for coming on. >> all the best. dagen: let's talk about operation red zone. the government and the nfl team in gupta crackdown on counterfeiters at this year's superbowl. they have already netted millions of dollars in fake merchandize and connell mcshane won't where the real stuff. connell: somebody else's jersey -- won't say they deserve it the government debt, experts have said that this is not the biggest economic concern. a big article we will talk about coming up. we have other things to worry

dagen: u.s. immigration enforcement announcing a record seizure of fake nfl merchandise close to $14 million worth. all of this that of the big game on sunday and joining me now the folks behind operation red zone is director john morton and nfl vice president for legal affairs and to start with you, talk to consumers out there, why should
11:15 am
they care? >> they should care for number of reasons, counterfeiting is a crime. and consumers, excited about their favorite players and the super bowl getting scant and duped by counterfeiters, on the enthusiasm of the game. dagen: part of a seizure of merchandize, in rhode island, and you focus on web sites that are selling counterfeit merchandise as well. how have your resources shifted to the internet? >> this is a global problem and the internet has made it more of a challenge. we were working in every state and most countries around the world and we have gone after 300 websites offering counterfeit merchandise run by organized criminals. there is nothing legitimate about them. very fraud from start to finish and we took an down and took 23
11:16 am
people down in the united states and as we noted we seized $14 million of counterfeit goods. dagen: when you have a lot of other things on your play, running immigrations and customs enforcement do you think this is a good use of resources in terms of manpower and money? >> i sure do. counterfeiting is an enormous problem for the united states. our economy thrives on innovation, doing things first differently, better and if you have organized criminals in asia and other parts of the world's they will undermine everything you do right away. it hurts the economy. remember these guys aren't paying taxes or investing in people or investing in the next iphone, they are not trying to put the super bowl on, they are criminals. when you buy something from these people your money is going to organized criminals overseas. dagen: how do you drive that message come from nfl fans?
11:17 am
if i want to stick jersey, nike wasn't making one, i am going to go out and find it some way somehow? >> that is a great question. we work with licensees to make sure there's merchandize the fans want that are available for them at every price point. so that they are not tempted to go out and buy something from a counterfeiter. we work hard with licensees and local businesses in new orleans and elsewhere to make sure we can meet the demands. dagen: designed it to go to the game since he is in frugal in this crackdown on counterfeiters? did you get him a ticket? >> we would love to have him. dagen: i would buy a plane ticket and 5 were you. john morton and anastasia daniels on the crackdown nfl merchandise or counterfeit merchandise. connell: back to the markets, doubters in thousand and addition of stocks. what we looking at? nicole: looking at the latest which is the new ipos today spun

explosives at a side entrance checkpoint killing himself, a turkish security guard and injuring a female turkish journalists. military sources tell fox news estate at this time. those are your headlines. connell: we will stay with that topic here and look at you oil market with tension in the middle east and the bombing in turkey outside the u.s. embassy worth $98 for crude oil although i will point out oil has been going that mostly on optimism about global economic growth certainly today, stock markets up, we'll following that. as we bring ambassador john bolton, former ambassador to the united nations, what should we know about turkey? >> turkey has had extensive economic growth in recent years under prime minister erdouon. they have been fundamental on religious issues, it was investor friendly and they have been receptive to outline in -- outside investment. we need to know more about the identity of who conducted this
11:25 am
terrorist attack. i am not sure i'm willing to go with the turkish government argument, that it was an extremist group. why would they take the risk of attacking the american embassy? that is why i don't think it is the kurdish independence movement. i think it is likely domestic al qaeda or some al qaeda element spun off from the situation in syria. connell: with the memory of ben got the fresh for many people after the attacks in september you would think the embassy security, are we making the right moves that we need to make on that front? >> people are more alert now. that is the most important thing but remember the fundamental defense for the embassies, consulates and diplomatic personnel is the host government. that is their responsibility. here it looks like our perimeter security work. we lost a security guard but that is inevitable that whenever the outer limit is. that is the most dangerous point. what we should be thinking about is the risk not just to official americans but the private citizens, we have many people on
11:26 am
business, tourism, religious reasons, dual citizens and if the terrorists are taking a lesson from benghazi and attacking american facilities there is a real risk it could spread. has been four months since the attack in benghazi and we have done nothing in response. connell: we will have new leadership in the foreign policy apparatus, the president states his name. i would like to get a quick comment from you about shut hegel, not confirmed yet and maybe won't be a slam dunk but looks like democrats have thee votes to concern -- confirm the defense secretary, quite a hearing yesterday and john kerry as secretary of state? >> assuming judge cahill is confirmed i think the second obama term will be basically the same as the first only worse. i think the risks that we have from a president who is not concerned about american decline, does not pay adequate attention to national security, who is very comfortable walking massive decreases in the defense budget, our adversaries have seen that pattern in the first
11:27 am
time, they have rear calibrated their policies accordingly and the risk is the pace and scope of challenges we face will accelerate. connell: what worries you the most? >> the two broad themes that we should be more worried about are the continuing war on terror which we now see spread across north africana and in the middle east and turkey and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. the iranian nuclear weapons program, let's not forget the north korean nuclear weapons program where they may be approaching a third nuclear test. connell: we will leave it there. a lot going on around world. thank you, appreciate it as always. dagen: thank you. the government debt, people saying this is not the biggest economic concern we have right now in this country and then we talk about some cars, ford, chrysler, gm, strong sales numbers for the month of january, more to come with gas going up and speaking of not

11:33 am
dire. i am sure we could dial up a guest in a heartbeat that would come on and start screaming about that. maybe there is something to that and we have been making too much of it. what is your take, anthony? >> i think that we are making progress. both democrats and republicans have shown some willingness to get serious on this issue. if the progress continues, longer-term as america is aging and you have all those unfunded pensions and you have the bid bowled should in healthcare spending and things of that nature, i think we have to buckle down and certainly continue and not give up the excitement of trying to lower these deficits. connell: that means the problem is not, as you say, tomorrow's
11:34 am
problem. what is a reasonable timetable for when the deficit and the debts are a big, big problem? >> i think in my view, it is as far as the eye can see. we are always thinking about a ten year horizon. we need to broaden not out even further. when you do that, the problem becomes a lot more acute. with a debt to gdp ratio, it is not so serious compared to other countries such as japan. it just is not as dire as the headlines suggest. connell: when do we deal with it? is there something to this argument to spend more money so we can create jobs? what is the timetable for when we actually should deal with it?
11:35 am
>> i think that if you ask me do we have to do with the problem and the next three months or the next 30 seconds, the answer is no. the economy is growing below 2%. in that kind of an environment, you have to continue to be supportive. when you look at the payroll tax, that takes a considerable chunk off. you have to sequester that will take off an equal amount. we have to be careful not to overdo it. connell: the payroll tax, we have seen some confident numbers this week. i do want to bring it back to the present day, literally, and get your take on the jobs report
11:36 am
what is your take? >> the upward revisions, as you say, are spot on. believe it or not, the unemployment rate picks up while we are still creating jobs. it makes the federal reserve more anxious to continue to support the economy. i do not think the details of it were bad. let's not lose sight of the fact that the three-month moving average is much stronger than it was. the fundamentals really do not look that bad on this report. connell: that is important. anthony, always good to have you. thanks a lot. >> pleasure. dagen: next, we are talking

12:04 pm
we ever realized. but how worried are you about the fact that the unemployment rate ticked up? >> i am concerned about the whole thing. one positive in this which is that nice provisions support for last year. let's look at the numbers. the 157,000, well below expectations. well below december, way below november, so it is trending down. an employe of a great sticking up to my participation is still hovering near the low, the 80's. wage growth is just about flat with inflation. what is to like about this report? at the markets like it because it means that the fed is going to keep quantitative easing going in boosting does as the prices. dennis: the weakness itself becomes attractive. of this that happened in dating lives more. what kind of jobs are we talking about? not enough in manufacturing well energy is booming? >> i am a little bit concerned. we saw that in adp report released earlier as well as

today's bls report. we are just not creating enough jobs in the manufacturing sector. that is where we lost, you know, thousands and thousands of jobs during the recession. it is showing that the u.s. economy, we are not creating enough innovation and new products. dennis: how much of this is because, you are lacking courage in not investing versus government policies discouraging businesses from investment because of higher taxes and exceptional. >> there is a lot happening here. some jobs may have been outsourced or gone overseas. it is cheaper to maybe manufacture products, you know, in china or asia. your sale of that. at the same time is there enough tax incentive for policies to get some of these small and medium-sized businesses to invest and manufacture more in the u.s.? at do think that is an issue. where we are seeing the job growth is still in the services.
12:06 pm
dennis: and we just raised the income tax rate on small businesses and a tiny sliver that make up something like over half of all profits earned by small businesses. this is one of the worst recoveries of all time for recession. do you think that government policies are playing a bigger role in this or is it just tectonic shift, plates shifting as remove to a new economy? >> i think that government policies have been more of an impediment in this recovery and help. particularly not just this year. you see the tax cut marginal tax rates going up. that is a negative. more importantly is that social security tax going back to its previous levels, that is hitting 77 percent of americans and will be a significant drawback. now you have continued uncertainty over spending cuts. this was going to happen when it comes down to it? they're going to delay the cuts again, continuing to have uncertainty premises is just a real impediment to hiring.
12:07 pm
cheryl: -- dennis: one reason, they're doing a lot of to umpiring. do you think this will stick around even after we reach a real recovery? >> said the companies are hiring differently. they want more flexibility in the workforce. you can see from this recovery the last three years, temporary labor has really been an increase. it has been above the last three years, and it is a begin this month on the year-ever-year basis telling you that companies want more flexibility to my airing differently. not just the low level. is the higher level. dennis: and when you have a job assignment that you see in this, you don't spend at the same rate you do when you have a supposedly permanent job commitment. >> and we also saw this week in the consumer confidence numbers that people are feeling this payroll taxes, and that is going to affect spending as well. dennis: great job. thank you for being with us.
